We could use your help...

Forget me not animal rescue is a 100% volunteer organization. Please see below for more information on volunteer opportunities.

  • Fosters

    Since we are a completely foster-based organization, every one of our rescue animals are in a home until they find their fur-ever home. If we do not have foster homes, we cannot pull animals from high kill shelters. Every animal needs somewhere to go.

  • Handler

    Dog handling during a fundraising or adoption event is a great way to help if you cannot commit to being a foster home. Many of our foster homes have multiple animals and bringing them all to events can be difficult. Most of our events are on weekends and will be scheduled well in advance. This is a great way to get your puppy/dog fix and meet wonderful people!!

  • Fundraiser

    Are you good at networking?  Do you have connections to businesses and restaurants? Can you help us reach out to the community?  We will always be in need of monetary donations and sponsors.  If you can help us form relationships that will assist in saving lives, forget me not would love to have you on our team!

  • Transporter

    Transporting is tremendously helpful! Most of our fosters have careers and families in addition to taking care of their foster animal. Transporters pick up and drop off at the desired location. We accept animals from high kill shelters all over the state. Getting to their foster home or veterinarian can be difficult to schedule and a transporter can help make the process much easier!!

Which foster are you?

Full fosters are expected to commit to their animal until a fur-ever home is found. Responsibilities include addressing all basic needs, minor training (housebreaking, obedience, etc.), possible transportation to one of our veterinarians, and assisting in the adoption process (meet & greet arrangements, providing basic behavioral information, etc.). All medical expenses are covered by FMN. Food and a crate can be provided upon request.

Temporary fosters typically have an animal for up to two weeks. This is needed with special circumstances such as a returned animal, or if we know a full foster will be opening soon, but the animal is running out of time at the shelter.

Isolation fosters usually do not have any other dogs or cats in the home or have a secure way of completely separating the FMN animal. We need isolation fosters until the animal is completely medically cleared and no longer at risk of spreading contagious illnesses.
